Question New clutch for a daily driver

I'm looking for a new clutch kit for my 2013 FRS and I was wondering if there are any suggestions for reliable kit for a daily driver?

The 3 most popular choices seem to be Exedy, Southbend, and ACT. The ACT requires you to use 1 of their lightened flywheels which tend to cause clutch chatter. I am not sure how bad the chatter is because I have never been in a car with the ACT.

Yep, like @Sapphireho said, the OEM clutch seems to work good for average driving with a non-boosted car.

I had an ACT. I would NOT recommend it for a daily driver.

Thanks for the suggestions. Do you know where I can buy these at a good price?

Another question is, do these kits come with the upgraded throw out bearing?

I'd suggest you check with a dealer for a price - then shop around.

Yes, be sure to ask for the NEW improved TOB, by part number.
